  1. Tyler was one of my favorite troops when we served together in Mountain Home, Idaho. He was a gregarious fellow, and was also cracking jokes with the rest of us to keep the mood light on the Flight Line. He was a great friend and always had words of encouragement or nice things to say about the people he loved. We shared many great memories snowboarding in the mountains of Idaho and Wyoming on long weekends. He will surely be missed by his brothers-in-arms. You and your family will be in my prayers. Rest In Peace brother.
